A prisoner in the roof….

Drama this morning. I’m with a friend of mine, in Hamilton (1/5 hours south of my home in Auckland) for her radiation treatment. We turned up this morning at the hospital were put in a room while prison guards and police searching for a runaway prisoner in the roof of the hospital. As we waited imaging the guy scampering around in the roof, we were told they didn’t want to crank up the radiation machine in case it affected the police trying to track him down. It seemed he was in for some dental work and on a toilet break took the opportunity to climb up into the roof. The guards waiting outside wondered why he was taking so long, and then found an empty loo and a missing panel in the roof. He was recovered though, falling through into the office of one of the hospital management. Oh to be a fly on that wall…..
